All funds in Oldham have been allocated, so we are no longer accepting applications from groups in Oldham Borough. The fund remains open in Rochdale and Tameside but due to the popularity of this grant we encourage groups to apply as soon as possible.
We recognise that community action continues to take place across the Borough in response to the pandemic. We value voluntary, community, faith-based and social enterprise sector organisations, mutual aid groups and individuals supporting communities through their action. We want to encourage and support this action.
Aims/priorities: The ESF Community Grant Programme is already helping many people in Greater Manchester who face additional barriers in the workplace to improve their employability and gain employment.
They are now launching our ADAPT Round.
At Action Together we recognise community action is taking place across the boroughs of Oldham, Rochdale and Tameside & Glossop, and we want to encourage and support this action.
We are delighted to let you know that we are launching a Community Response Fund that is available for Oldham, Rochdale and Tameside & Glossop groups from the voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise (VCFSE) sector working on a COVID-19 Community Response and meet either of these priorities:
Tameside, Oldham and Glossop Mind are recruiting for a Project manager.
Community Warehouse Rochdale are overjoyed with their latest donation from Morrisons Supermarket in Rochdale.
Mencap have a new and exciting opportunity in their Family Engagement Team.
The Family Engagement Worker will support the delivery of this project alongside the Family Engagement Partner and Family Connectors who will be parents of SEND children who have lived experience. They will complement the Family Engagement Team in Tameside & Rochdale by primarily working collaboratively with SEND early years families and key stakeholders including the community sector.
